Toothache Relief

Having a toothache can be absolutely miserable, particularly if you can’t afford the often expensive dental care to remedy it. Here’s a simple do it yourself remedy for minor toothache pain that you can do at home . . .

You’ll Need:
1/4 c. vodka
1/2 c. water
1/4 t honey
6 drops Cinnamon Essential Oil
12 drops Clove Essential Oil

Measure all the ingredients into a glass container such as a mason jar, seal and shake well to completely combine.

Use 2 Tbs like a mouthwash, swish for 45 seconds and do not swallow.

For essential oils we choose to use Young Living Oils as they are pure oils and not adulterated with various fillers. These are the only oils I will personally use internally as they contain a dietary supplement label.

  1. q:
    what is the purpose of the vodka?
    what does it do?
    it can’t be for taste, because vodka usually has no taste….

      Thinking the vodka is used to kill the bacteria?

      I usually will take a small cloth and soak it with Listerine and place on the affected area.
      Leave it there especially for really bad toothaches at night to help me rest at night.

  2. i think the vodka is a carrier that preserves the solution. Listerine uses large amounts of alcohol for that purpose. I am a dental hygienist and I will tell you that oil of clove is used to combat infection.

    However if you have a chronic infection you should see a dentist, this rinse may minimize pain and inflammation for minor problems but chronic and acute infections should be dealt with by a medical professional. They are nothing to mess with. Even in modern times a tooth or gum infection can cause serious health risks
